The Zoloft type of medications can take 4-6 weeks to reach a theraputic level. I would give it a little more time to work, especially since you just upped your dose. I am hoping the higher dose should kick in for you soon.
I too was wondering if you knew what triggered the panic attack? I am not so sure it is a medical condition that caused it, but more than likely some big stressor.
Keep coming and talking to us, we are here for you. We have alot of wonderful and supportive folks trying to live with a/p too, so we do understand what you are going thru.
